Banyan Tree illa Bahamas: An eco-conscious, solar-powered luxury resort that's a 20-minute seaplane ride from Miami, USA
Paradise on earth
When you think of The Bahamas, glistening waters, exotic marine life, and stunning white beaches come to mind. Not to mention, unparalleled access to one of the world's largest reefs, leading to a playground for scuba divers and snorkelers alike. Now, Singapore's very own Banyan Tree has marked its own territory in this paradiscal destination, with their first property — Banyan Tree illa Bahamas — smack in the middle of the Caribbean island. And with 40 acres of pristine oceanfront and bayfront properties to spare — our homegrown hospitality brand certainly didn't come here to play.
The Bahamas will also be seeing a debut of Maldivian-styled overwater bungalows with Banyan Tree's foray. Allied with world-renowned architect, Chad Oppenheim, the resort also stands solar-powered, coupled with afforestation — meaning no trees were harmed in the development process. A huge pro when it comes to travelling consciously in today's climate.
In Banyan Tree fashion, there'll be signature private terraces, plunge pools to lounge in whilst soaking up the sun, and plenty of time to remain in reverie. After getting your daily dose of Vitamin D, savour culinary delights from the slew of unique pop up stands or dance to the beat from their curated music series. For a little peace and time away from the bustle, head to their secluded oceanside meditations. After all, why wouldn't you be at ease in a place like this?
Banyan Tree Illa Bahamas is set to open by November-December 2021.
